The writings of Wayne Bent


After years of using the Internet to share their beliefs with the world, members of the Lord Our Righteous Church ultimately went silent in July following their leader’s grand jury indictment for child sex crimes. That leader, Wayne Bent (aka Michael Travesser), led the way in the church’s collective “word fast”.

The LOR took down its Web site ( and its members did-away with their youtube and myspace sites.  All of this has amounted to a bit of frustration for people hoping to learn more about the church’s teachings.

While some of those youtube videos and myspace sites have re-emerged here at and elsewhere, the volumous posts on became hard to find.

Earlier this summer, I acquired a collection of more than 70 pages that had appeared on and some of the LOR’s related Web sites.  The person who provided me with these files had used Google, and other means to download the writings over an extended period of time. While these methods are useful for obtaining “lost pages” from the Internet, they don’t often provide pictures.  So, you won’t find a rich collection of photos and graphics here.  Best to consider this resource “text” or “information” driven.

I suppose it’s worth mentioning here that–prior to obtaining these pages–I had also attempted to use Google’s cache feature and to obtain many of these same files, but by the time I had attempted to do so, most of the material was no longer available.

To be clear, others have also collected the writings of Strong City.  I’m not purporting to have a big “exclusive” here.

I do hope, though, that you will find this to be a convenient and useful collection of information.

It’s not the A-to-Z collection of everything penned by Wayne Bent (for example, I’m presently missing page 13 of “The Vision” series of posts), but you will find years of Bent’s writings below.

The collection here also features posts written by several members of Bent’s flock.

Why is this important?

Firstly, the opportunity to evaluate Bent’s own words further affords the opportunity to consider his side of this controversial story.  That, it seems to me, improves the aim of fairness.

And secondly, the reader might identify specific threads that he or she feels have relevance when considering the criminal charges in this case.

I hope you’ll agree that whether you have affection, disdain or simply a clinical curiosity for Wayne Bent, his writings do have relevance.

  1. Congratulations to you Mark for publishing these writings. I like your unbiased way of presentation.

    A skilled prosecutor and a likewise adept defense attorney would be well advised to be familiar with these documents (let’s hope that someone gets these into the prosecutor’s hands). Looking these over, I find some which are highly implicative of a very willfully devious mind. One example really stands out as something very incriminating. Take a serious look at “The Way of a Man with a Maid.” I see it as a “grooming” blueprint to manipulate females of all ages to come to his bed under the guise of it being of their own free will. No wonder those children thought it was their own idea. How could they have thought otherwise without condemnation? I wonder what a criminal psychologist (who specializes in the ways of child molesters) would say about these very pointed instructions? Wayne seems quite transparent.

    What down right crazy writtings…and show hos utterly sick they all are.

    and what’s really crazier…is mr bent had a vasectomy years ago…so his seed is no longer!
    So how can he explain his perfect seeds when he doesn’t have any???
    While reading some of the testimonies, I got nauseated it was so sickening!
    But you can see how wayne is manipulating minds.
    It scares me when I think of how all the other cults end, in death by suicide.
    Wayne says won’t happen…but is he speaking from an “eartly view” or “heavenly view”?
    To him, there is a vast difference!
    what a sick mind this man has.
    May God have mercy on his soul.

  3. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. America, America, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! [Matthew 23:31~37]
